PRS and YouTube deal
September 8, 2009
PRS for Music and YouTube have signed a licensing agreement that covers music contained in videos streamed via the online video platform. As a result, premium music videos will be reinstated to YouTube in the UK.
The deal will be backdated to January 2009, when YouTube's previous licence expired. As a result of the agreement the songwriters, composers and music publisher members that PRS for Music represents will be rewarded when their music is used.
